“In this series Anna Savino from Piemonte is sharing inspirational Italian recipes”

Pesto Filled Ravioli With Potato Cream and Green Beans Recipe from Chef Margherita | Trés  – Trezzo Tinella

This tiny restaurant called Très, is an off the beaten path treasure. Located in the Alta Langa above Barbaresco, you will be welcomed with big smiles and exquisite food.

Margherita and husband Luca have chosen a vegetarian fresh pasta recipe. This dish is summery yet rich Pesto is a great sauce to go with mineral whites yet the fresh pasta calls for something a bit richer.

TRéS RECIPE FOR PESTO FILLED RAVIOLI WITH POTATO CREAM AND GREEN BEANS

 

INGREDIENTS FOR 4 PEOPLE

PASTA
400 grams ( 2 cups) of all-purpose flour
300 grams ( 1 1/4 cups) of egg yolks (approx. 12 yolks) *

PESTO FILLING
Fresh basil
Pine nuts
Parmesan

POTATO PUREE
250 grams (l large) Russet potato

Tasting Notes

Flavours reminiscent of orange slices, orchard fruit, and tropical melon. The fruit is elevated by a refreshing and balanced acidity with a lingering finish.
